Rebels and Redcoats recreates the battlefields of the Revolutionary War. The war began in 1775 when the American colonies rebelled against the British Empire, even announcing their independence in 1776. In the subsequent years, Britain tried to end the revolt and recapture the American lands. The rebels however had support from Europe, together with France and Spain later joining the war as allies to their cause. A critical American victory at Yorktown in 1781 broke the British resolve and was a catalyst in launching peace negotiations. The war ended in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris and global comprehension of the sovereignty of the United States.
